If you’re looking to increase your fitness levels, then a treadmill is a great investment. So, you’ll want to make sure it keeps running for as long as you do. For this to happen, you’ll need to maintain it so that it stays in excellent condition.
Here are some tips to help you out.
After you’ve used your treadmill, it can get a bit sweaty, so always make sure you give it a quick clean. Wipe down the area underneath, as well as the deck and the conveyer belt. You want to keep it as free of dust as possible, as this can interfere with the electrical component of the machine and reduce its life.
Make sure you lubricate the conveyer belt every three to six months. Newer treadmills don’t tend to need this, but older model require regular lubricating to keep working at optimal levels.
Check the tension of the belt on a regular basis. If it feels like it’s slipping a little under your feet, then it means it has become loose. Always make sure you check the belt’s tension frequently.
After your treadmill workout, it’s important to switch off the machine, both at the treadmill’s controls and at the main power point outlet. This should also be done before cleaning, lubricating or servicing the machine.
To keep your treadmill it excellent condition, make sure it has a routine maintenance check-up once a year. For more information or to buy a treadmill, contact Nordic today – we have showrooms all over Perth.
